Chiyaan Vikram’s son Dhruv is making his acting debut with the upcoming romantic-drama Varma, a remake of the Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy. The teaser of the movie was unveiled on Sunday.
Dhruv Vikram celebrated his birthday on Sunday in style as the teaser of his debut Tamil film Varma was launched at a popular star hotel in Chennai.
Speaking on the occasion, Vikram said he feels proud as a father and Dhruv has done a great job. He also heaped laurels on director Bala for help moulding the career of both him and his son.
The one-minute long teaser seems to attempt a frame-to-frame adaptation of Arjun Reddy with minor changes. Dhruv tries to look convincing in the lead role, but needs to work more on his expressions.
Dhruv said, “I don’t know what my producer Mukesh saw in the fun Dubsmash videos which I posted long back; he was impressed and approached my dad whether I would be interested to play the lead in the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy.”
A little over a minute teaser sans dialogue plays out in the backdrop of a classical soundtrack by composer Radhan, who had also scored music for the original Telugu film.
We get to see a glimpse of Varma’s substance abuse, alcohol abuse and casual flings which unfolds in the aftermath of his breakup with his girlfriend, played by debut actor Megha. The other side of the personality which is of a passionate lover, marked by aggressive and impulsive behavior, is also shown in flashes.
